Arn – The Knight Templar
An excellent film with a stellar cast including Stellan Skarsgard, Simon Callow, Bibi Andersson and Joakim Nätterqvist in the starring role as Arn Magnusson.
Arn – Knight Templar Is a tale of abiding love, set in a time of religious intolerance, deep hatred and bloody holy war.
Arn is driven away in punishment from all he knows to join the ranks of the Knights Templar during the crusades after making many enemies by humiliating and defeating the King’s champion in a fight to preserve family honour and by falling in love with the defeated man’s daughter.
This is the type and quality of film that Hollywood sadly seems incapable of making today. Thank goodness that countries other than the US have the foresight to produce new films, not merely remakes…
My rating – five stars
